Hmmm you're close.Good thinking Glenn.Now as all the reels feet are 2.5" long (Hardy Fortuna X2,Hatch7+,Tibor Everglades...even the two Abels..Super 8 and 7/8N)it must be the narrower profile of the Abel feet,which means two things..the locking ring pushes up further and therefore the wind-up fighting butt doesn't wind up far enough to secure it...there's not much in it,but enough to allow both the Abels to be loose.Keep 'em coming!
P.S.I would have thought that Loomis might have addressed this issue from the beginning as this is their high end rod..go figure as you Americans say!
